Cameo temptations

The cameo is also a classic motif well beyond the world of jewelry: here we see it in the form of a candle by Cire Trudon, as chocolate by À la Mère de Famille, as a mug handle by Astier de Villatte, as make-up by Ladurée or printed on a tea service by Bernardaud. The Fragonard house, which is very fond of this motif, uses it in soap and candles.
